How to expand visibility and editing of Forum topic tags?

    I am running a fresh installation of BP 1.2-RC3(trunk2714) for WP 2.9.1 single user. Out of the box, a user is only able to add tags to a Forum topic at the time the topic is created — there is now way for that user or the admin to add/delete tags when editing the topic. This would be helpful.

    The way you display and interact with tags in this Buddypress forum is much better. You can add tags to a topic and then edit or delete them any time after that. You also have the ability here for any user to add and delete tags from other people’s post — not sure if I’d go that far, but it would be nice if the topic creator and the site admin had that ability.

    I tried just adding the tag fields from the forum.php file to the edit.php file in my child theme. It’d didn’t error our, but the tags that are already entered don’t appear on the post when editing, and new tags added when editing a topic are not showing up on the Forum tag cloud.

    Any ideas on this? Basically looking to match the tag adding and editing ability that you have here on this Buddypress forum.

    Not really because this isn’t provided out the box and won’t be quick or easy to do. I doubt you are going to get any “code snippets” unless someone needs this for their site and is feeling generous.

    Thanks @DJPaul. I created a new Trac ticket to request this as a future enhancement: https://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/1988

    Great suggestion, and I’m sure it’ll get in :)
